Re: [ADSM-L] open Access files
As the tsm has difficulties backing up open files such as .mdf database
files, you can use TDP agent for MSQL to get around to this issue.

Hello again all,
I was wondering if anyone can tell me how they deal with Microsoft
Access (.mdb) files. If these files remain in an open state when the
backup runs are there any issues? Will they get backed up? Will they be
in a usable state when restored if they do get backed up while open? We
know from past experience open Oracle files are not, which is why tools
are available to back these up, but I'd like to hear from anyone who has
experience the .mdb's.
Thanks for the help.
